Situated in the center of Barcelona, Homesession has been founded in 2007 and initiated a residency programme dedicated to visual artists. Run by french curators and architect, Homesession hosts each year up to 8 artists from all over the world. The idea of this residency is based on a real integration to local life: the programme provide a flat and a studio and sessions with homesession’s curators for individually-tailored residency development.

The programme is particularly interested in emerging artists developing artistic or experimental production projects based on new ways of producing and discovering the city. Homesession’s curators have a special interest in artworks that explore private and public space (i.e. site-specific installations), time and body (i.e. performance) and identity.

DURATION OF STAYS AND CAPACITY
Homesession Studio offers stays of two or three months duration (there is also the possibility to stay 1 or 3 months). This gives artists the opportunity to enjoy the interaction that can be generated within a culturally active neighbourhood in the centre of Barcelona. This, and the involvement of Homesession in the local art scene, makes the stay a key experience in the creative process. We only receive one artist or artist couple at the same time. The reason being to ensure that we can offer quality support.
FEES AND GRANTS
You will find a detailed breakdown of the cost of the residency fees in the following link:
Thanks to the support of institutional partners, we also offer three grants a year, that cover the residency fees and some extra production costs. When applying for the residency, the artist systematically receives access to the selection process for the grant. The response to the applicants includes the resolution of the jury for both residency and eventual grant.
